I just finished Summer at Willow Lake. Not sure why I chose to read a summer book in the middle of winter but oh well. This was a fast read about Olivia who runs into Conner 9 years after spending summer camp with him. Cute story. I am planning on bookcrossing the book.

I got 1 seed catalog in the mail a few days ago. Now I have started planning for our spring gardens. The hardest part of gardening is waiting for spring to get here. I am planning a big garden this year. Tomatoes, peas, corn, lettuce, cucumbers, potatoes, flowers, and rose bushes. I can't wait!

I am currently reading the Gutenberg Elegies. It has started me thinking about the changes in education and how I will teach reading in the future. Will we still use traditional books or just computers to teach reading? What will be lost in the transition.

It is 2010. I am going to blog about some of the books that I read this year. If I blogged about every book I read I would not have enough time. lol The book I am currently reading is The Gutenberg Elegies: The Fate of Reading in an Electronic Age. I love the irony of blogging about this book. Anyway I am only on chapter 2 so I cannot write too much about it. So far the author, Sven Birkerts, discusses how his students view books over movies or websites. He is concerned that his students have become conditioned to fast paced and thin plots and are not able to decipher the meaning in great works of literature. His students tell him that they do not "get" the works and are not interested in trying to understand literature. Has the next generation become hard wired to only appreciate fast paced media? Will we lose the meaning in our current literature within a few generations?
